Countdown to Christmas - Day 5

Yesterday was the first Sunday in December which meant it was time for our annual book club holiday gathering.  I love this event each year.  We get together, eat wonderful food, enjoy tasty beverages, exchange recommendations for the year, and then we pick a book that a fellow clubber brought and read a touching note inside as to why that book affected them.

With all our diversity comes a diverse grouping of food allergies.  We have citrus allergies (yay me), gluten sensitivities, lactose intolerance, and MSG allergies.  So when we make dishes for each other, we divide and conquer.

I made these cute food stands for our event.  They are simply a 3 1/4 x 8 1/2 piece of cardstock folded at 4 1/4.  Then you take a 4 x 1/2 piece of cardstock and score at 1, 2, 3, & 4.  Bend into a "w" shape and staple the two ends to the bottom of the larger cardstock to make a stand.  I then typed up the rest in Word and printed four to a sheet on Very Vanilla cardstock.  I cut them to 3 x 4, added a small strip of the Candy Cane Washi tape to the bottom of each one, and attached with adhesive.  Easy peasy!

  • Cardstock: Real Red (3 1/4 x 8 1/2 - scored at 4 1/4, 4 x 1 - scored at 1, 2, & 3"), Very Vanilla (3 x 4)
  • Ink: None
  • Stamp Set: None
  • Accessories: Candy Cane Washi Tape, Adhesive, Stapler

While we have many great products on closeout, there is one program that you really should check out as well.  I only sell things I'm passionate about and this product line is definitely one of my favorites!

Paper Pumpkin is creativity in a box.  It costs $19.95 plus tax and ships to your mailbox once a month.  It contains everything you need for your own creative escape.  Besides the instructions and pieces for the cards or project, it also contains ink and photopolymer stamps and usually the adhesive you need as well.  My subscribers will also get a project sheet with tips and additional ideas and instructions that they can make with the supplies in the kits and sometimes some supplemental supplies.  They also are invited to participate in a free Paper Pumpkin Playdate to make their kits using any of my additional supplies like framelits and punches!  It's a wonderful program and I'd love for you to try it out!  Sign up by the 10th of the month to get that month's kit!
